What Makes You Think Your Memoir Is So Special?
From the eyes of a young poet, this autobiographical memoir explores a multi-cultural section of Hollywood, California during the early 1960s. As her family life unravels, a young girl escapes to the streets. She bargains with God to take her childhood in exchange for the knowledge she needs to survive. From each place she explores, she acquires new wisdom, insight and understanding ultimately leading her back to home--to hope, to an understanding about the source and scope of her troubles. Exquisite language, poetry and an operatic musical background are the soft blankets laid upon the harsh realities she often faces.
